With a Project Management Certificate from the School of Management, you will learn to meet the challenges that face today's project managers and develop the competencies needed to successfully plan and manage projects. The program includes practical exercises in managing project attributes such as scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communication, risk, and integration.
By the completion of this program, you will be able to:
Project managers, program managers and project team members who are interested in gaining a better understanding of project management and methods for improving the quality of their environments. Novice managers in the field will greatly benefit from this program. While this course is not intended as complete preparation for the PMI's PMP certification, it will enhance your understanding of project management and cover many of the topics that are core to this credential.
This program satisfies the 35 contact hours required to apply for the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam. The content delivered is based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), the same content that is the foundation of the PMP exam. This course is a good option if you prefer a classroom setting and need more one-on-one interaction as you prepare to take the exam. It is also a great place to network with other aspiring PMPs, and project managers. Many of the participants form study groups with each other.
